And to get straight into it – after a considerable amount of deliberation, I’ve decided that over the next 6 months I’ll be stepping away as the CEO of One Girl. Given how much you all know that I live and breathe One Girl, we want to share with you a bit of background as to why – and as you’ll see, I’m still going to be living and breathing what we do, but just in a different way….

She’ll start experiencing things without me, dad or little sister in tow….

First it was Ebola, and now this. What should a girl do when her whole life is washed away?

By | Blog, Sierra Leone | One Comment

A couple of weeks ago I had one of those experiences that changes your whole perspective on the world. It was a Wednesday night, and Lauren and I were hosting a call with some of our scholarship girls in Sierra Leone, and our Project Officer, Emmanuel (the calls are something we offer to our Founding Members of Graduation) – We wanted to hear a direct update from them about how being back in school has impacted their life and how every day life was going after the Ebola outbreak had calmed down. We’ve hosted a call like this once before, and it…
